The Fringed Flag

The United States is run by the Military. The fringe on the flag that you see in all courtrooms and government buildings signifies a Military Flag and thus Military Jurisdiction as reflected in the U.S. Code.

By Executive Order No.10834, signed on August 21, 1959 and printed in the Federal Register at 24 F.R. 6865, pursuant to law, stated that,

 “A military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a yellow fringe border on three sides.”

Notice how the Vatican flag also has a yellow fringe around it (the Vatican is the head of Admiralty Law).

The U.S. is Ultimately Run by the Military

Never will you see the U.S. Flag without a yellow fringe inside any government building, except the The Supreme Court of the United States for the District of Columbia, the original Article 3 Section 1 Court of the Constitution of the United States. This name was the name that was switched from the original name of The Circuit Court of the United States of the District of Columbia on March 3,1863. There is no fringe on the Flags in those Courts. The Supreme Court on Capitol Hill is different and is referred to as the High Court of Justice. The definition of the title is “The High Court of Admiralty.”
